Thanks first off to Charlie Miller for bringing us this fine show. Set 1 isn't absolutely essential, but it does add some nice context to the 2nd set Dark Star craziness.
Bobby has the highlights of this first set - a very kozmic-psychedelic Rooster and an absolutely giddy Space-like tease at the end of Victim are great reasons worth listening to this set. It's good to have in relation to what comes next.
Subject: No labeling,
no track numbers.
Subject: almost a four
great opener and a great 1st set closer... as to the "scary music" notes on this night, I just don't understand. Must have been the setting because these are some pretty bluesey sounding tunes. All quite stock in sound (good versions!)
Subject: how do what?
I was at this show. I took a break from 85 and this was my first show back. pretty cool huh? how come I don't have the option of downloading this show and others? i would really like to you know.Can someone help me?

Subject: Note To Jammin: Maybe I got Jam In My Ears
This is a note in response to JamminJerome's review.
Whereas, Jerome, you are correct that there is nothing special about this First Set, nonetheless, that it is nothing special makes it all the more special for me, because that's often how the GD were, IMHO.
In short, the word "Dazzling" could be substituted here to describe these songs, and that could thereby render dazzling: nothing special, and nothing special: dazzling.
This is an excellently performed first set, and the sound is wonderful. If it were not for some fits and starts in the recording, and some pops and clips, and a few trivial drop-outs, this presentation would merit a 4.5. However, for me, 4.5 is close enough to round off to a 5. I am willing to concede, perhaps, that I am not as discerning as you, or maybe my ears need de-waxing, or something.
But to me, this is just nothing less than great Grateful Dead.
Subject: lackluster 1st set
not impressed. Hope the second set is better. Nothing of note here.
Subject: Drops and Skips...........
The drops and skips in Red Rooster at 3:28 and 7:13 and in Big River at 1:40 are on the original Shn's,so it's not the band f*cking with ya,or should I say Cameron,since that's who Phil blames,Yeah right!!!! BTW,the mix on this one is better than DSBD on Set 2.
Subject: Drops and skips
I wonder whether the drops and skips are intentional "watermarks" to screw up recording of the stream. After all, they pulled the soundboards to slap the faces of the fans, why not take the next step?
Subject: I love this first set!
Great Foolish opener. The Little Red Rooster is my number one favorites. Brent smokes in this show, great vocals. My copy of this doesn't have those drops and that skip. Awesome show.
Subject: Where did it go?
Set one seems to be missing,,,
Subject: yep, foolish opener =5stars automatically
period. Listen to the first few notes and ignore the little skip. I saw an interview on tv many moons ago where Jerry was like, to paraphrase, I don't like to write songs telling you what to do so maybe you Should give your love unto a foolish heart....
Subject: It's a 5-star show...
...It's a five-star show all the way so this set deserves a commensurate rating. Besides, any first set that opens with Foolish is good by me.
Subject: droup outs
There are drop out on little red rooster and big river.I think there is one also in the begging of foolish heart.But besides that the sound mix is better than the second set
Subject: a classic
This show is really dark. Make sure to pickup the second set for the best dark star of the 80s (and the 90s too?).
